“Knights in Training is a breath of fresh air in today's world. In this must-read book, Heather Haupt provides an inspired and powerful roadmap for anyone raising boys to be polite, compassionate, honorable gentlemen. Highly recommended!”
-Amy McCready, Founder of PositiveParentingSolutions.com and author of The “Me, Me, Me” Epidemic: A Step-by-Step Guide to Raising Capable, Grateful Kids in an Over-Entitled World
"Chivalry does not have to die and civility does not have to be a lost art form, but the only way for these to make a comeback in society is to start in families and at home. Heather Haupt offers fascinating insight into the current state of boyhood and manhood, alongside a practical and fun guide for training our boys in the ways of courage, kindness, and honor. I'm inspired to raise my three boys to be modern-day knights who will love God, respect and serve others, and leave this world a better place than they found it."
-Erin Mohring, co-founder of The MOB Society and Raising Boys Ministries, writer at homewiththeboys.net
“I often talk with parents about the importance of teaching boys to be gentlemen. Then parents ask me, “How, exactly do I do that? How do I raise my son to be a gentleman?” From now on, I will know just how to answer. I will tell parents: “Read Heather Haupt’s book Knights in Training.””
-Leonard Sax MD PhD, author of the New York Times bestseller The Collapse of Parenting, Why Gender Matters, Boys Adrift, Girls on the Edge
“As a father seeking to raise a son in an environment that seems at times hostile to the idea of manhood, I found Heather's book both challenging and refreshing! I pray that the 10 principles espoused in this book would by God's grace become normative for how we seek to raise our boys into men.”
-Matt Chandler - Author, Lead Pastor of The Village Church, President of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network
"I am so grateful to see a fresh perspective on an age-old quest: raising boys into men. Using the time-honored code of the Knights, Heather reminds parents that not much has changed when it comes to raising the next generation of young men. Treat women with respect. Tell the truth. Be generous. Thanks, Heather! I needed that. We all need it."
Heidi St. John, Author, Speaker, Creator of thebusymom.com
"Heather Haupt has written a much-needed guide for raising boys into men…Chivalry is all-but dead, but Haupt's excellent book will tell parents how to bring it back to life!"
-Family psychologist John Rosemond, author of Parenting by The Book

However, I found it to be a very worthwhile read - full of important insights about raising men, casting vision for them, and the heart of parenting.
Although I think this book is ideal for parents of younger boys, I honestly took at least one practical idea from each chapter that I read and I would heartily recommend it to anyone raising or working with boys. It even prompted healthy discussion with my daughter about understanding boys.
Raising boys to be strong men of courage, conviction, and perseverance is no easy endeavor and I appreciate the insight and inspiration in this book.
I want you to know how much l appreciate your book, Knights in Training. I am now a grandmother of a little two year old granddaughter but l raised two sons.
I absolutely would have worked your Knights, code of conduct, chivalry and honor theme if l had only had your book 30 years ago.
So in that l can not go back l am giving your book to all the young mothers-of-boys that l love. I have now made 3 orders of 5 books. Whenever l think l have covered everyone, then another young mom comes to my mind. I have even given two as new-baby gifts.
So again Thank You. You pray with me that these young Alabama moms will become"Warrior Momma's" as they walk out their "boy raising adventure"!

This is not a quick read. You could read through it within a few dedicated days, but the message is too important & too meaningful to NOT savor and absorb slowly. I recommend reading straight through once to get the flavor for the quest and then refer back to it in parts as you apply it to your life.
I think the 10 codes in this book are best implemented with your boys as soon as possible.
I most appreciated the code and chapter on respecting women which also addresses the epidemic of pornography addiction. The tips & action plan were so helpful.
This book is full of thought-provoking and much-needed words for parents. I hope and pray that our generation of parents will accept the challenge of raising true men and women of the Lord.
